female on 50mg sertraline, weight loss/ weight gain?
I am 32 female and I am suffering depression for a long time on and off. last 2 months due to medical problems my low mood became permanent depression. Today I saw psychiatrist and she suggested taking sertraline 50mg. she said its my choice as she can't force me.
My main worry is Weight, as I have/had eating disorder I control my eating to stay slim. I am not under weight at all. (in fact in last 2 months I put a bit of weight but scared to weight myself)
I am not such a person that depression caused weight loss, or lack of appetite.
I want to know does sertraline cause weight gain or weight loss. She said any time I can stop it and I am due to see her next month. I know it takes 2-6 weeks to see the benefit.
Please give me your experience especially those who are slim before starting the medication. Did you lost weight or gain?
Please help me here
